terrestrial landing map en route to the moon. it's being haled as a major milestone to the science program. china will send someone to the moon in 2020 now that we can no longer send someone to the moon. >> we know what's there. we're worried about what they want to use it for at this point. what is this jade thing, it drives around? >> yeah, like a buggy that will go around and check out the surface. >> maybe if it drives everywhere it could find a moon rock more interesting than what we've got. if they could cover the whole rock, the whole satellite. >> maybe they're going to deliver packages. >> maybe they're going to do that. >> deliver amazon packages to the moon. >> i love the moon, it's beautiful. it makes you feel nice, but i'm done with the moon. we need to go somewhere else to make it interesting. >> one of these 40 billion earth like planets that are supposed to be out there nerds, listen up. the largest known private memorabilia collection from the "lord of the rings" collection will be released this week. there will also be props used by the evil ring reichs, prosthetic hobbit

and that would have meant more support for girls in math and science because they were not doing as well as boys at one time and we managed to close that gap, that would have meant helping boys despite everything else, reading, writing, school engagement, classroom comportment, pretty good research, teachers have a bias against unruly students. understandable but these students can be 5 or 6 years old. i don't know if it is something we want to blame the boys for or punish them for, we want to make a classroom happy place for the manned room for their personalities and high spiritedness. we haven't done a good enough job with that. >> host: is there a shortage of male teachers and does this have an effect if there is? >> guest: there are few male teachers in elementary school. you have slightly more in high school but still this is a slight exaggeration but one critic of the current school system said schools are run by women for girls. an overstatement not my much. a lot feel that way. researchers interviewed boys, why did you leave school? why did you drop out? one little boy said i thought no
this looks like science fiction. it's not. >> reporter: amazon's jeff bazos unveiled its experimental delivery drones, prime air. amazon hopes within the next four to five years to deliver up to 5-pound packages in a half hour to anywhere within 10 miles of a warehouse had. >> these are autonomous. you give them instructions which gps coordinates to go to and they fly to those gps coordinates. >> reporter: wusa9 has actually had one of these drones for about a year, but we've been unable to really use it, both because of legal restrictions and because of d.c.'s no-fly zone. amazon would have to deal with the faa's drone restrictions and then there are questions about safety. can you imagine one of those 5- pound packages dropping right on your head? and then there are questions of privacy. imagine if you had a drone flying over your head looking in your windows. aviation experts say it is doable and the faa tells me it is committed to the safe, efficient and timely integration of unmanned aircraft into the nation's airspace. but it is not allowed now and it will likely be 2015 before
and science. of the 34 developed countries involvedded in the study. u.s. ranked 26th in math, 21st in science and 17th in reading. that's despite the united states spending more for student than almost all other countries. the u.s. spends about $115,000 per student. the slovak republic spends about $53,000 a student. >>> no news may be good news for b.a.r.t. commuters. it's been ten day since the board asked union leaders to resubmit a revised contract without a disputed family leave provision. still no talk of the unions going on strike for the third time this year. it appears more and more likely that the unions will head to court to settle this contract dispute. >>> all right, pam. time about 7:12. a big meeting scheduled today on treasure island. why many people are being told they may have to pack up and move out of their homes. >>> devastating. >> a deadly shark attack in hawaii. >>> good morning. we're looking at a commute that's moderately heavy. as we look at 280 at the 880 interchange. you will see it's slow. coming up i will show you what the san mateo bridge looks like. >>> still
their role that way. this is not to say that law is a science or a mechanical enterprise. you obviously know that it is not. we disagree on many things. sometimes we disagree incredible -- we disagree in predictable ways that follow in our own theories of how to interpret the law, constitution, statutes. all of those are so different in thinking about policy and the way people in the clinical branches do. -- in the political branches do. that was when i was in my 30s. it was a different role. it was a different set of responsibilities. as a judge, i think about law and what i am doing and what i am called upon to do in a very different way. of all the things in my life that affect what i'm doing now, i honestly think that affected the least. one thing that i bring to the i guess table from those years is an understanding of how certain political processes work. sometimes it is relevant to particular cases that we may hear because of course, we do review a lot of executive branch decision-making. but other than that, the ways of thinking and the goals of what you are doing are pretty divergen
lover of science and philosophy so that was an early influence because raising me in california there were all sorts of influences but i had lessons and i took latin and french and i think we had a fight with the school system because with latin and spanish and french they said you can't take three language and my mother managed to turn this california school into a little prep school on the east coast. so a very strong influence on me. .. strong influence postmark before we go to call, how did you end up at the american enterprise university? >> guest: once i was on tenure, i went on a ship that went around the world and it's about 30 professors in the wonderful program. i was friends with all of them. i liked all of the teachers but they were certainly didn't radical. it was marxist, and this was in 1988. the soviet union was intact and yugoslavia was celebrated as a model society. so long story short i came off the ship and wrote an essay called the professor at sea. especially since it was so colorful. teaching these young women that they were oppressed and again, i found it

are down four spots in science coming in at 24. and they slipped another -- >> this is unbelievable. >> ten spots -- >> look at that. >> to 21st when it comes to reading. several chinese cities as well as japan and singapore saw their students improve significantly. >> willie geist, your mom has been involved in educational reform. we were talking about mike bloomberg who dedicated four years to it. the gates spent billions and billions of dollars and the only thing -- not the only thing but one of the main things they learned reducing class sides. they spent billions of dollars on that. that doesn't work. man, the past four years when it seems everybody's focus has turned to education reform in a big way, just been disastrous, not disastrous but terrible. our state of the union are getting worse and worse. >> this is a trajectory we've seen for more than a decade. it goes back. maybe you say we'll give the reforms of the last few years to settle in. reaction to this study was amazing. you have all these special interest groups saying it's not our fault. it's not the fact that we're teachin
